Abstract

The point prevalence of Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) in schizophrenia outpatients (n = 6981) participating in a study of health outcomes was 8.9%. Duration of diagnosis, age, and prior use of typical antipsychotics were diagnostic indicators of TD in this population, with male sex further increasing risk. This study provides new data in a non-Western population with a unique regional geography comparison.
